Want to learn how to program by building audio apps? Well get ready! This is an ongoing series of tutorials dedicated to teaching musicians, DJ’s and anyone familiar with digital music technology (synthesizers, samplers, sequencers, MIDI, DAW’s etc.) the basics of programming by building web and mobile based audio applications.
Quote from the course creator:
Be warned, learning how to program isn’t for everyone. It can be intimidating, daunting and downright irritating at times, but the long term rewards are very good. As I take you through these tutorials there will be times when I ask you to do things and don’t explain immediately why. Those answers will come in time. At the end of every tutorial I will summarize the things that you should know.
In the first tutorial I will demonstrate how to use HTML/CSS by building a simple interface that will ( eventually ) trigger drum sounds when you click on circles. I hope this series lends clarity to a few aspects of web application development and interactive audio, and I hope you have fun and enjoy!
- A Macintosh or Windows computer with an internet connection.
- Basic computer literacy.
- Familiarity with general audio/music technology & terminology (synths,mixing consoles,DAW’s etc)
- Either Chrome 21+ or Safari 6+ Web browsers.
- Sublime Text2 code editor (Downloaded & installed) – Download here. You can technically use any text editor including notepad (Windows) or Text Edit (Mac) but I will be using Sublime Text2 for these tutorials and thus you might want to use it as well.
Be sure to send course feedback on the requested channels so the designers can improve the course and work out any kinks before the official release.
Thanks & Enjoy!
